Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce
On the way home from a successful Golden Triangle Days in Austin, I received a phone call from Allison Ehrlich with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. She was calling to tell me the Board of Directors of the U.S. Chamber had voted to award the Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce the designation of a Four Star Accredited Chamber of Commerce.
In the United States, there are 33 chambers of commerce with this designation. In Texas, there are 13 Four Star Accredited chambers of commerce. The Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce is proud to become a part of this elite group.
The Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce is two months into 2017 and celebrating great news from Lamar State College Port Arthur. The Sheila McCarthy Umphrey Industrial Technology Building is under construction. This project would not be possible without generous funding from individuals and companies. To date, the companies that have made donations include the Port Arthur Industrial Group, Golden Pass Terminal LLC and Golden Pass Refining LLC, Total Petrochemicals & Refining USA Inc. and BASF.
